Can you tell me if you have a windows or Mac computer?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi John , windows 8 acer laptop ,E1-571 .

Thanks Lee

Can you tell me of you are running any third party antivirus or firewall software?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Norton 360 and Macafee sec plus

Thanks, Lee.

Please temporarily uninstall both of those products.

Next uninstall all ofthe following Apple components:

Apple Software Update
Apple Mobile Device Support
Apple Application Support

Once you've completed the removal, restart your computer and re-install iTunes again. Make sure you download and install the latest release:

Once installed, run iTunes once to configure any needed settings.

Then plug in your iPod and verify it is recognized.

If it is recognized by iTunes, then you can re-install your security software one at a time and verify it does not interfere with iTunes.

If you still have concerns, please do not negatively rate my answer, simply reply back before rating. I'll be more than happy to work with you further. When we are finished, please give my answers a positive rating so I will be credited for my assistance.

Thanks and good luck,

Great, I'm glad to hear it!

Yes, you can reload your security software. If the problem happens again then you know what is causing it.

Hi John I did reply and gave an excellent score to yourself ? However I now have been charged twice for your service ???

Hi Lee and thanks for the positive rating. I see only a single question from your so am not sure where the second fee might originate.

However, I am not an employee of JustAnswer and so do not have access to your account details to handle concerns of this nature.

You can contact customer service directly via [email protected] with any financial concerns. Just let them know that you are happy with the service on this question but have a second charge for unknown reasons and they should get you squared away.
